Les Parisiennes

Les Parisiennes

A few days ago I came across an article in  Net-a-Porter’s online magazine about “Les Parisiennes… what is it about them that makes their style so impossibly chic and the envy of women the world over?” Its all about adopting a signature style.

So what is a signature style? For me, two things come to mind:

1. Silhouette

This is what the article talks about. Take the Parisian ladies in the photo: cropped/cigarette trousers, a simple T-Shirt, heels, and a piece of arm candy (hello, Collier de Chien) – don’t excessorize with everything you own. The look is sleek and elegant, and easy to re-create by us mere mortals with fitted trousers, a casually tucked in shirt, a tailored blazer and a statement accessory, be it a scarf, classic timepiece, a bracelet or cuff or a clutch bag. And of course, a pair of heels is a must!

2. Colour

To give an example of what I mean, check out the photograph of the model Hanne Gaby here where she wears the Acne Lia jumper (and on a separate note, a post on that is coming soon!) in an all-mint ensemble. What catches your attention about the look is the colour, not the separate items.

What does signature style mean to you?
